In this video from the series ‘In Conversation with Chris Paton’ Chris talks with Charlie Wagstaff about his experience of being a leader in The Royal Marines.
In an early placement, Chris was leading 27 Marines in a single detachment all on his own, commanding those who had much more experience of the job and the environment. It was essential that he be vulnerable and ask his team for advice as they had a much broader understanding and insight of the issues at hand. It is this collaborative approach that built trust and coherence while at the same time achieving their objectives through collective involvement and ownership.
